Remember the good old days when anyone with a camera, a few thousand bucks, and more ambition than talent could schlep up to Bronson Canyon and quickly make a cheap sci-fi/horror movie? Well, they're back! THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA is an affectionate, meticulous re-creation of those notoriously cheesy clunkers, as a gaggle of beloved stereotypes pursue "that rarest of all radioactive elements--atmosphereum."
Writer/Director Larry Blamire heads a superb cast--including Fay Masterson (Eyes Wide Shut), Brian Howe (Gran Torino), Andrew Parks (Donnie Brasco) and Jennifer Blaire (The Majestic)--that faced a daunting task: having to be brilliant and terrible at the same time!
The dialogue is marvelously insipid, and the music cuts in and out of the action with breathtaking suddenness. Aliens from Mars crash-land, setting loose a mutant, while a mad scientist re-awakens a talking skeleton that could hold the key to world domination, and don't forget Animala, a half-woman, half-animal beatnik! It's one of the most original, clever, and hilarious comedies to come along in eons of your Earth years--and became such a fan favourite that there's now a sequel...maybe two...
